Hillstone Press Release

Time For An Intelligent Firewall

by | Jun 16, 2014

June 16, 2014—SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Hillstone Networks pioneers intelligent Next-Generation Firewalls. Over 5,000 customers, including Fortune 500 companies, large enterprises, financial and government institutions, service providers, and data centre customers worldwide rely on Hillstone’s proven high performance network security solutions.

Lingling Zhang, Vice President, Marketing & Business Development, is responsible for Hillstone US operation and market development through partnerships and channels. “The mission of the company is to create a secure environment for our customers, in fact for everyone because we are all citizens of the cyber world,” believes Lingling. “Traditional firewalls are becoming less and less capable of adequately protecting corporate networks. A new and innovative approach to network security is needed. It is time for an intelligent firewall.”

Legacy Firewalls are no longer effective. The most commonly deployed firewalls are port-based and limited to just two options for controlling network traffic: allow or block. The most significant difference between NGFWs and traditional firewalls is that NGFWs are application-aware. Gartner defines an NGFW as “a wire-speed integrated network platform that performs deep inspection of traffic and blocking of attacks.”

Hillstone Networks offers advanced protection against unknown threats. Only Hillstone’s intelligent data correlation analysis and advanced threat detection can discover the abnormal traffic behaviours that identify next generation threats and slash risk before there’s any business damage. Hillstone doesn’t rely solely on attack signatures, thresholds, and updates. It adds sophisticated abnormal traffic behaviour analysis, security and traffic data correlation, big data analytics, and deep application awareness to discover and address abnormal attack related behaviour.

Hillstone’s innovative network security technologies are integrated on the firewall platform, eliminating network latency and enabling real-time policy enforcement to mitigate threats. The cost effective, all-in-one solution delivers advanced threat detection, analysis and security enforcement in a box.

March, 2014, Hillstone Networks announced that its Data Centre Firewall has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready certification essentially confirms compatibly of Hillstone’s platform with Citrix environments and is trusted to enhance Citrix cloud solutions for mobility, virtualization, networking and cloud platforms.

“As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent security solutions that combine our Data Centre Firewall with Citrix CloudPlatform,” said LingLing. “The offering clearly demonstrates our plans to work closely with trusted partners, like Citrix, in order to provide the highest quality solutions and experience for our customers.”
